Colorado Chiropractors Now Able to Give COVID Vaccine Injections

Decision Reflects Broad Changes in the Profession Since COVID Began

According to Emergency Rules now in effect for COVID-19 vaccinations in the State of Colorado, chiropractors may now inject patients with the experimental COVID-19 vaccine in hospitals, inpatient and outpatient facilities.

These shocking changes were triggered by Executive Order D 201 008 signed last week by Governor Jared Polis. The Emergency Rules and the expanded scope of practice allow chiropractors to inject people as delegated by physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice registered nurses, certified nurse anesthetists and professional nurses.

While chiropractors may do the actual injecting of the experimental vaccine, they cannot prescribe, order or select which one to give.

This profound and shocking expansion of the scope of practice allowing chiropractors to inject vaccines comes amid a wave of changes in the profession over the past year.

From the endorsement and mandating of draconian measures such as mask wearing, to COVID testing, giving the actual injections and getting the vaccines themselves, the chiropractic profession has shown how deeply splintered it is when it comes to these issues and how lost it is in regards to its philosophy and foundational principles.

Some examples:

The United Kingdom's regulatory board has been promoting the experimental vaccines and warning chiropractors that they must do the same.

The Royal College of Chiropractors has urged chiropractors in the UK to help vaccinate its citizens by signing up to be an injector.

Chiropractors in Quebec can now give COVID vaccine injections with the Health Minister saying the purpose is to increase vaccination capacity.

Following in the footsteps of the United Kingdom where chiropractors can sign up to be "vaccinators" the Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé has stated that students and a variety of Quebec health professionals, such as chiropractors and veterinarians, will be able to help give COVID-19 and flu vaccines.

In the United States, the Florida Chiropractic Physicians Association (FCPA) is lobbying lawmakers in that state to grant chiropractors the right to practice medicine similar to how DO's were granted the right during World War II so that chiropractors can help manage the COVID pandemic.

The chiropractic profession has historically been divided along these lines and COVID has accelerated the deepening of the divisions as battles over vaccines, masks, sanitizing and other unscientific methods are forced upon a profession whose guiding philosophy is at odds with such unscientific and fear based tactics.

Many leaders that have historically advocated for the traditional, conservative side of the profession, such as Gerry Clum at LIFE University, have come out and basically told chiropractors to "just do it" in regards to masks and other questionable practices despite the science.

All of this movement toward testing and injecting is despite the widespread concerns about tracing, the mandatory seizure of DNA and the related loss of personal autonomy and consent. The British Chiropractic Association wants asymptomatic chiropractors tested for COVID, never mind that its been shown asymptomatic people pose little threat.

And the Northwestern Chiropractic Program has mandated COVID testing for all of its students with students nervously awaiting word on whether or not the vaccine will be mandated for them.

The American Chiropractic Association states on its webpage that chiropractors fall within the description of health care providers able to be vaccinated as front line workers.

The ACA goes on to point out that chiropractors were declared essential by the federal government and the ACA brags that it was the ACA's pressure on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that got that designation.

It is this designation that could force chiropractors who want to continue to see patients in the future to have to be vaccinated in order to do so. Indeed some counties in California have already mandated flu shots for chiropractors.

The ACA encourages chiropractors and their staff who wish to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to contact their state or county department of health to arrange for the vaccine. The ACA claims that integrated settings like hospitals or community health centers that a chiropractor has a relationship with can also be sources of the vaccine for them.

Both the ACA and the WFC endorse the practice of vaccination. The ACA also endorsed the flawed anti-chiropractic immunity document put out by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) which was then used to go after chiropractors around the country for educating their patients on the role of chiropractic in immune function.

The New York Chiropractic Council just recently sent out a notice to its members stating its been receiving inquiries from its members about how and when chiropractors can get the CCP virus vaccine and the Council provided all the contact information to help chiropractors get the injections. The Council has historically been a vitalistic chiropractic organization though it is listed as a RELATED ORGANIZATION on the ACA website and has close ties to the New York State Chiropractic Association which is an ACA Affilliate.

While the widespread support and acceptance of vaccinations within the chiropractic profession spreads, at the same time everywhere you look it seems the profession's own "leaders" have been attempting to silence and muzzle chiropractors for speaking out or even sharing information with their patients about the role of chiropractic itself in immunity. The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and Parker University's President Bill Morgan DC and its Director of Research Katherine Pohlman DC, Ph.D threatened chiropractors early on when COVID emerged claiming their was "no credible evidence" of a clinical role for chiropractic in regards to immune function. Morgan threatened chiropractors that they would be "under the hand of the law" if they engaged in such discussions. The Texas Board of Chiropractic, among several other state boards, adopted the WFC's flawed position and sent out emails to licenses in the state to muzzle them.

The Pandemic of 1918 catapulted the acceptance of chiropractors by the public and they earned respect for the service they provided to the sick and suffering masses. Unlike 1918, the current "leadership" of the profession has taken a different approach this time. Seeking instead to keep chiropractors quiet about the benefits of their care while at the same time forcing chiropractors to accept, endorse and enforce draconian measures and injections that go against the foundational principles of the profession and have little to no scientific basis.
